anyone joined recently? i remember having a few clips back in the day and loving it. just wondering if its worth it for a single month? also i seem to remember it was just a bunch of clips, the idea was to get you to buy dvds. was this true? thx
The PU/TBP link shows a signup price of $44.99 per month and $149.99 for one year. Looks like the special price shown on TBP has been withdrawn. They still offer the 2 day free trial that converts to $44.99 per month on day 3. They also still offer 3 months for $89.99.
First of all I have to say that I joined this site thanks to a 1 day free trial offer, so I cannot complain much since I didn't pay for it.
The reason I joined was, basically, to get access to the videos by some of my favorite girls, in particular Little Caprice (Caprice A in this site) and Blue Angel. And so I was a little dissapointed to see that there were only to videos of each, and although they were in fact highly erotic and extremely well filmed, well, I was expecting more.
During my 1 day free trial, of course, I also browsed and downloaded pictures and videos from other models, but I have to say that, after a while, and if the models didn't seem remarkable enough, it all started looking the same to me. I lost interest.
It's a pity because, in other aspects, this site seems made precisely for me: it offers high quality, sensual erotic material, without the hardcore, often extreme, sometimes disgusting stuff that you can find in most sites. Videos are filmed with care, and actors and actresses act passionately and with tenderness. Of course, if you are looking for a more extreme take on sex and porn, this site will probably dissapoint you.
From the technical point of view, I have almost nothing to complain about: you can stream videos (although I couldn't get to fast-forward) or download them in different qualities. Download speeds were good, and there didn't seem to be a download limit, even in free trial mode.
All in all, this site is excellent in the quality of the videos (technically and artistically), very good in relation to the beauty of models, quite good in design and navigation. It just gets a little repetitive when you browse through the archive. But hell, what site doesn't get repetitive after a while?
Site has a decent amount of content, but the pictures are completely unrelated to the videos. Picture quality is generally excellent HD, while the videos, despite their very large size (which download none too quickly) are blurry and badly shot. If you're only interested in pictures, you might like this site because it does feature some models you haven't seen over and over again. But it would be a much better site if we could see the movies that go along with these pics. Hopefully they'll post them at some point, but as of now, this site is pretty much a miss.
Since DDF seems to differ slightly from what I found to be very easy with other sites, I thought I'd post a question here on how other users/members do.
What I basically prefer to do is this: find a scene, download it together with a "cover" image, and store them together in a separate folder. This way its easy for me to browse through scenes by the cover images using a mediastreamer connected to a tv.
On first impression DDF seems to be exemplary: an excellent "cover" image showing not only the scene name and the performers but also the site name.
But when adding videofiles into a download manager, and downloading each "cover" images separately, its neither easy nor exemplary to me: the image found on the download page has no file name which relates to the downloaded scene, and can differ slightly from those "cover" images presented when browsing for scenes. The image found on the download page is both smaller in size and can be less informative.
So far I found it to be less than enjoyable manually renaming files/sorting out which image goes with which videofile.
Am I missing something? How do other users do when organizing their downloaded content from DDF network sites?
This site, and it's network, was once a great place before ownership changed. They now engage in the shady practice of throttling download speed during various times of the day, that is to say they intentionally and with malice aforethought slow down your speed, even to less than 100 kb/s at times. Of course the motive being to save bandwidth and increase profit. Before you ask, yes I checked this out thoroughly to make sure it wasn't me. For instance, I downloaded simultaneously form Met-Art and this site; Met had my normal speed, OBJ was drastically slower. I did join through TBP discount, perhaps it's only us. But I'll never know, because after I rip the whole site by downloading day and night, I will never join this or any of their sites again.
I've seen them for a while now on the met art network sites, says free day then you are charged $30 or something. Has anyone anymore info, is it legit, can you download anything on your free day and is it possible to cancel in time or do they charge you even if you cancelled as soon as you signed up.
Have not been here for quite a while - but the main reason for joining once again are loss of former material - due to external breakdown.
Generally the ups here are the different way of shooting vids - compared to most other main sites - it's got a certain touch of libido and foreplay that a lot of those other top/mainsites miss - and there are some not so well known French models with a different attitude.
And a large number of material.
The downs are too many models that would (probably) not turn your head in the street....
BTW: The join gets you to some French billing co. - not comfortable with that - but after a couple of hits I got to Epoch - and just cancelled the rebill - and got a corfirmation after a couple of minutes......
Here's hoping this message will get to the webmasters.
Because I'm such a passionate fan of Aria Giovanni, for that reason alone I would plunk down whatever it takes to see her videos that are featured on a given site. Getting all the other bonuses that goes with her stuff is just icing.
But Aria has created a problem that exist not only elsewhere but also on DDF Network that's drastically changed all that.
The following will explain what I mean .........
The woman has developed an inordinate obsession with her tits. Over 90% of her videos anymore are rife with her fondling them even beyond Ad nauseam.
Even for tit-lovers its bound to wear on them.
All the other fabulous anatomical gifts she should use is wantonly wasted because of her seemingly endless, digital lifting, squeezing, pushing together, nipple pinching, rolling, or any other thing one can think of a woman can do with her boobs.
Whatever happened to her bumps and grind and sundry other wildly erotic writhing and hip thrusting. Hell, who wants to see tits when she can do so much more with her other equipment?
Another thing I'll pass along while I'm so ticked-off:
Her recent sharp increase in lesbian roles is also becoming serious scene stealers.
That, and all her mammary-calisthenics are taking up so much celluloid that her great, unmatched legs and ass action is falling by the wayside.
Tell the woman this tit thing has got to be bothering a large segment of guys out there, who, like me, are sick and tired of looking at the dammed things.
I happened on a truly amazing deal on a 30-day join to the DDF Network. Unfortunately, I was much less excited by the download speed I'm experiencing. I'm downloading at 265 kb/second at DDF Network. That's so slow that I had to do a test, so I downloaded a vid from Twisty's, which downloaded at 2.5 mb/second.
I'm coming to the end of a month membership and went to cancel. It was a much more frustrating experience than usual so I thought for future members my lessons-learned may be of use.
I'm used to billers like CCBill and Epoch so my default means to cancel is to go to those sites and cancelling is easy. Private's primary biller is Rocket Gate and that's who I was billed through. I went to their site and found nothing for consumers so I Googled "Rocket Gate how to cancel membership" that did take me to a page where I could enter my email and username. The problem is that they had no record of me even though they are the biller. So I emailed them. That was 24 hours ago and I haven't had a response.
The Private site has no link for your account, but at the bottom there is a link for support. That leads to an FAQ page where there is a question about billing. Most of the answer directs you to Rocket Gate, but if you have the same problem as I had then that's not of any use. There is, however, a link to prvtbilling.com. That brings you to a page on the Private website that allows you to enter your username and email address. That worked.
I should also note that I didn't receive a confirmation email when I joined. Those often contain cancellation information. I first thought that could have screwed up my email address when I joined and that would explain the lack of a confirmation email and the inability for the biller to recognize me, but since the Private site itself recognized the email address I'd say I wasn't at fault.
My final advice is that since your membership remains active for the month even after you cancel I recommend trying to cancel early in case you do have problems.
Looks like this site has really gone through some changes and appears to offer some really high quality stuff. Shame about no special offer and regional pricing though, 30 euros a month means no prolonged memberships for me.
Surprisingly they seem to accept PayPal too. I thought they had some kind of no porn rule...
Anybody member here sho could check if they offer Private magazines or photosets too? Might be my next subscription.
OK, maybe I'll submit a full review when time permits, but I just did a signup after the recent "95" rated review for this site... and I am sorely disappointed.
Honestly, for a site that's been around so long, you'd think that certain basics would have improved. (I did an earlier subscription a couple of years ago.) My major disappointment: the photos are not just smaller than most top sites -- they are very lacking in fine detail and resolution. Honestly, you could take sharper, higher quality pictures with a cell phone these days. I really don't know WHY Clubseventeen manages to take such aweful, soft and blurry images. And it applies to almost every set. I just gave up after a while.
Other issues: the preview pages give the impression that tons of galleries are added across the many categories. But actually, it's only the main (white shaved teens) categories that get regular updates. Others like "unshaved teens" and ethnic teens only get a handful of galleries each year, if that.
Oh, and navigation sucks. You can't even tell which page you're on because the "1,2,3...Last" links don't highlight the current page.
The girls are truly hot. If only Clubseventeen photographed them in sharp, high-quality images, they'd have a much better site. But things never seem to improve there. Rating: 55.
As always, these guys are fairly aggressively marketing to ex-members like myself. Their latest (Halloween-themed) e-mails advertise a deal on six of Met's sites, mostly on the harder end of the scale, including one called MagikSex that I hadn't previously heard of. Anyone know what the deal with this site is - how long it's been around, whether it's a pre-existing site or a newly created one, etc?
From the previews I looked at, it seems like the hardest site in Met's network currently with the possible exception of Ninn (e.g. there's a fair amount of orgies and DPs), but still artsy. However, oddly for this network, I've seen some of the content before - at least some of it seems to be repackaged from various Private films. So seeing it on Met's network is odd, to say the least.
Beeing fed up with a lot of repetitive porn, this site is the first I've joined for quite some time.
But like Drooler mentioned in September "For $10, You Can't Beat It"
Ok, it's now 13,95 - but still a good price for something different. Ok - it's softcore - but I like that, too. And here we got (still got) British and other Euro-models - some you can't find elsewhere - and some great models doing posing and strip - and they still update some of the rare once like Laurena Lacey with older nude posing vids - and Brooke Bailey and Lisa Marie - both british you won't see much elsewhere.....It's a nice site, if your're into softcore.
PS: Have not been at PU much lately. Two reasons: Have only joined very few sites and then: my English is getting rusty - maybe it's age........
MetArt adding a tinge of more eroticism to some photosets.
MetArt is still softcore. But yesterday, 2013-10-19, they added a softcore lesbian photoset of two models. The models actually were shown touching and kissing each other's breasts, as well as kissing each other on the lips. A few years back the models might have looked at each other with their eyes, but fondling was strictly forbidden.
I guess Met-Art is trying to boldly step into the new world of eroticism, where being nude is not enough to satisfy its audience.
I saw the other comments about confused billing and was impressed by the web masters commitment to resolve the concern. I watched closely and the sign up process and cancellation process is now very clear.
I wasn't certain what the site was about for sure, and I must have been crazy to sign up for a 3 month spin on a hunch.
I am sure glad I did.
There is a lot of stuff here to see ....it is going to take me 3 months to find my way around. There are some very good looking ladies here doing some pretty wild stuff.
It sort of like being caught in the middle of a three ring circus where most everyone is naked or soon to be naked.
A part of the reason its so easy to get lost on this site, is that no matter where you land you are watching something that catches your interest and after a while you forget where you were going in the first place.
Glad I gave it a shot, and really glad I signed up for a longer subscription. It is going to be a long while before it is time to move along.
I firmly believe that a web site is only as good as its customer service. Once again this week, Met Art demonstrated that it is an AWESOME web site by providing some of the best online customer service I have ever experienced.
I upgraded my subscription from monthly to annual. My monthly subscription was through Epoch and my annual subscription is now through their new biller(Rocketgate?). What I did not realize is that Epoch had already queued me up for my monthly charge, which I saw on my account a few days after upgrading. I sent an email to Met Art support telling them about the issue. Within a few minutes, here is first class the response I got:
My name is amnon and im the CEO of MetArt,
So sorry for your trouble; however rest assured you are in great hands and our support team is looking into this issue ASAP.
we will make you happy.
all the best,
OK, I'm not easily impressed, but here is a guy who truly understands how important it is to be responsive to customers.
So many other websites (adult or otherwise) really don't care when there are problems and some (often adult) are downright obnoxious (Go look at the chain of my MPL Studios comments. I complained about an easily resolvable problem and MPL Studios blamed ME and permanently kicked me off of their site.)
Oh, and yes, I was promptly refunded the Epoch overcharge and received a follow up email from Met Art customer service to ensure everything was OK.
Kudos to Met Art for not only having a terrific web site, but for ensuring that, in the words of the CEO, "I am happy". Yes, I am happy. Thank you very much!
